Sure this street art might be Latino inspired. You’re in the Mission District! Much safer feeling than Shannon Street with more murals. A quick stroll to let your burrito digest before you order more food somewhere else.

This is an unique place to visit and I am glad my friend brought me here. The regularly changing street art is fascinating and very nicely done. Most topics are about the community and its struggles. Inspiring.

Spend an afternoon in the Mission and checked out Balmy alley Murals. The work is just fantastic and if you take time to understand the meaning it all makes sense. Very short alley though.

From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the

make this neighborhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
